Warm Springs Composite Products
architectural fire-rated composite door frames
Warm Springs Composite Products is tribal-owned manufacturer located on the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs reservation in central Oregon. The company is most well known for its fire rated door frames and architectural door components.
Warm Springs Composite Products holds a number of patents on products and processes which help make it a leading supplier of fire-rated building components in the U.S. The company is also experiencing rapid growth in overseas markets, including a large number of high-profile projects in South Korea, Dubai and Bahrain. The company’s success can be attributed in large part to a sophisticated product development strategy focused on adding value to its base products in order to create new ones.
WSCP fire-rated frames are sold through a network of remanufacturing companies that have been certified by Intertek testing Systems and approved by Warm Springs Composites to use WSCP's rated constructions to properly machine and finish the frames. Fire-rated frames are available in an unlimited assortment of hardwood and softwood veneers, as well as paint grade and high pressure laminates to match the doors, wood casings, and trim throughout the interior space. The frames are available as single or double rabbet, for single or paired openings, as well as communicator frames. Moisture resistant substrate is available on request.
WSCP's frame design incorporates intumescent material concealed in the frame itself, thereby eliminating the need for intumescent in the doors. This results in significant cost savings without compromising the ability for the opening to achieve the necessary fire-rating. An available patented adjustable clip system allows for simple and quick installation, saving the contractor both time and money. The frames can be installed using traditional methods as well.
WSCP frames are certified under ITS approvals to achieve positive or neutral pressure 20, 45, 60, and 90-minute ratings in openings up to 96" x 96" with wall thickness of 4.5 inches or greater. Call WSCO for details on British Standards.

Molded composite sheet products and machined components are available in dimensions up to 2" thick, 48" wide and 96" long. Industrial composite panels are in one of two basic panel designs: Solid Laminated Panels or Bi-Directional Skinned Panels.
Wood closure strips, for use in installing corrugated roofing, are produced in a variety of profiles and delivered pre-packaged, labeled and bar-coded ready to stock on the shelves at home improvement stores and building materials retailers.
Specialty wood stiles are custom-designed to each customer's unique specifications and can be ordered in truck load quantities or as part of mixed loads. LTL shipping is also available for short runs.
Laminated wood posts make good use of scrap lumber that would otherwise be hogged and burned in boilers. Instead, WSCP end-, edge- and face-glues this scrap lumber together to form uniform posts in a variety of dimensions and lengths. Once the substrate is formed, the posts are finished by laminating a thin (usually 1/16" or thinner) piece of clear wood to each face. The result is a post with the appearance of solid clear lumber. Laminated wood posts are available in a wide range of finish species and virtually any dimension specified.
In addition to standard specialized wood products, Warm Springs' product development engineers are at the ready to create wood products that are unique to customer specifications. Call 541-553-1143 to learn more about how WSCP can help you better serve your customers.
